:rolleyes: So, I am curious what kind of bra's you are wearing under your uniforms. I am bigger chest size and obviously do not feel that Victoria is going to be the best to wear on bumpy roads and leaning over and all. Do you wear "full sports bras" or supportive type bras? I know this is a weird question, but I am curious. Thanks in advance!:p

If you are truly big chested, you can always get one custom made. While it's expensive, it will fit you the best and provide the best support for you.

Personally I always wore a good regular bra.

You can try Lane Bryant if you don't feel Victoria's Secret will cater to your bust side.

Note: You can get one custom made even if you're not big chested, but I have several "well endowed" friends who have trouble finding a good bra and have one custom made, and they also tend not to be droopy, popping over or overly bouncy.

Some guys need to wear a sports bra to keep their moobs under control. Seriously.

Apparently the Seinfeld (sp) reference has escaped you.

Something I thought to add to my original post, find a bra and TRY IT ON before you buy it. Stand in the mirror in the changing room (In your own stall, not the public mirror!) jump around a little bit, bend over, etc. to see if you bounce too much or pop out of your bra.

Also finding one that properly fits you is paramount to good support and less bounce. Have one of the girls at victoria secret measure you (Even if they don't carry your size they can still tell you what size you need.) SO many women are walking around with the wrong sized bra that kind of works but could be better.

I am pretty sure my bra's will not coming off at work, but thanks Mtn. :) Yeah, sasha, great advise. Its been a while since I have had to buy any, but I am regular at VS and get measured just about yearly. But it makes good sense bending over and all.

I have also been generously endowed. (I wear a 38F). I wear a professionally fitted minimizer bra and a sports bra on top of the minimizer. It sounds uncomfortable, but it really isn't. I stay in this getup throughout my 48 hour shift. It is a good way to keep the girls locked and loaded. :p

I used to be shocked by the fact sizes go past D.

I'm a 38DD and I just wear a normal bra. Mine are the "full figure" type though so they have full cups, not the 3/4s or demi cups or whatever the heck they are called.

I prefer sports bras make of natural fiber that also have some moisture wicking properties due to the heat and humidity. Regular bras straps also become a pain after a few hours. However, a quality sports bra can be expensive and you may have to hit several stores to find one that is just right. Usually if they just go by S, M or L, the fit will be generic. Find one that is based more by bra size and give it a try.

I'm not very big (the opposite actually) seeing that I am a 34 A but I do wear sports bras a good bit. A good thing to know is that the Target brand synthetic material bras are just as good (probably better) than anything nike or any other company makes. And this is coming from a runner....
